4 Star??? Maybe in 1983
If you are used to 4 and 5-star resorts, you can probably see the value for the price is lacking. There are competitive resorts nearby offering better value for the price. Google reviews had several negative comments, but the service has improved since then. However, senior management may not supervise the day-to-day running in the hotel and staff at times are stretched. Noon checkout had only one poor employee trying to deal with way too much on the day before we checked out. The line was way too long to be acceptable. Management should ensure their staff are not overburdened as the cleaners were rushed to do their job effectively and certainly did not do a top-class clean even though the COVID cleaning signs stated otherwise. The most significant selling point is the beach out the front with the pool and gym next to the beach. The beach location is their winning ticket but the hotel needs senior managers to be on the ground with the staff and start looking closer at the finer details that are meant for 4-star resorts.
